Changing Names



Lately I feel like I need to change the direction of this blog.  You know....maybe to a daily weather forecast.  It's a total gamble as to what will happen each day in this small town.  One day it is warm/hot and the next, well it is snowing/sleeting/freezing and goodness only knows what else.  

It makes for good times.  

Not really, but I try to make the best of the situation.  Ball games are cancelled, no recess for the little people at school, and the dogs don't want to go outside.  Everyone is feeling it.  

Spring is happening purely by faith and not at all by sight.  


"In the spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours."

  1. We are the same here. I am sure April will make up her mind. The thing about that is that it will then be May. Take care. Hug B

  2. Perfect quote for Western P A . Snow out there again this morning.

  3. It's been the same here. Yesterday we had rain, sleet, sow, sun, then back to ice pellets, rain, then snow and wind. Craziness. I'm in no hurry to plant a garden this year.

  4. ...life is a gamble, but it's the only game that we have to play!

  5. Oh, I hear you. It got up to a whole 36 degrees here yesterday with snow flurries and sleet! Today supposed to be in the high 60s or low 70s. Hang in there.

  6. Science helps us with this...and spring is often full of surprises. But climate change is having an immense effect, much of which we're not even aware of. Large portions of Florida will be underwater by 2050 and right now Miami has 3-4 inches of water in certain streets at high tide. I read yesterday that scientist have discovered the "imaginary" line dividing the west from the east has moved 150 miles east which means that a lot of farmland will turn to dust. Anyway things are crazy all over the world. Hang in there, your temperatures will warm and settle down. I think. We are also having some nutty weather. It's 85 some days and 65 others. Yesterday and today - quite cold for this time of year. And windy.

  9. We are having similar weather too. Warm in the 80's than down to 30-40's with snow flurries today.
    I think Spring is refusing to stay for now. I am sure these cold temps will have an effect on the blossoms and plants. I hope we all can enjoy some warm spring days soon. Have a happy day!

  17. We here in Hawaii have been having the same. islands are in "Emergency" status. But at least we don't have to shovel in the morning.

  18. That seems to be happening all over the more northern part of the USA map, variability from day to day and hour to hour, but with a bias toward cold. My daughter in SW Connecticut is beside herself.

  22. Crazy weather . . .
    Have you noticed the birds, flying, flitting close to the ground . . .
    They seem as confused as I am . . .

    This snow ice mix we had this past Sunday just hasn’t stopped . . .
    It has snowed every day since. Plus the ice is so thick, weather temp so cold that the ice can’t melt enough under the snow which is on top.

    I can watch the Robins from my windows, coming up close to the house where some of the ground is exposed from the warmth of the house. They are digging there for ground worms no doubt. One Robin looks so chubby and frantic, wondering where to build a nest . . . and what to find to build a next with.

    We had one small patch of a green perrenial grass and yesterday I watched a bunny nibble off the tops of this green patch.

    And even more confusing . . . Six weeks ago I was raking in our yard . . . with a few patches of snow piles here and there but no full snow cover. The temperatures were cold enough for a warm fleece, hat and gloves but the ground clear enough to begin the spring clean up.

    Topsy Turvy Mixed Up Crazy Spring For Sure . . .
    And I haven’t even mentioned the wind and the sticks . . .

    We live in the heart of blueberry farms, apple and peach orchards and our famous Michigan asparagus . . . What must “they” be thinking . . .

    Venting my heart out aren’t I . . .
    All the best to each of you as we sort out this maze of craziness . . .

  25. I'm very fond of your blog as it is and aspire to become more like those of you with just one picture and few, but meaningful words. Oh, well, so far no success with that. I hope your Charlie is doing OK. They are family , for me they are my closest family.

  26. I was just gobsmacked yesterday when I saw a perfect rainbow followed by enough sunshine to make me consider hanging clothes outside and then torrential rain for about 2 minutes--and repeat all day long!!

  27. sunshine -- rain -- wind .. all intermittent and ignoring the weather man's claim(s).
    but the flowers. and trees. beauty beyond belief. and barely a sneeze from me which
    is not typical this time of year - guess my new allergy meds are working well!
